    Icons Layout Backup

    Hi! I wonder if there is a way or a program that allows to save the desktop icons positions and layout. I don't mean that I have an issue with icons not preserving their position after a reboot, I mean I would like to have a backup in order to restore my layout quickly, for example after restoring the icon cache ecc...

    I remember that, in the XP times, there was a dll (well, two: one for saving and one for restoring). Any suggestion?

    I use "desktopok". Though not as convenient as the dll you mentioned, this seems to work well.

    Win 10 Pro x64
       2 Weeks Ago #4

    Desktop OK has worked for me for several years--but as of this week, it no longer does. I have a two-display setup, and for the past few days, the stuff on the left-hand screen (display 2) keeps migrating to the right-hand screen (Display 1), and some of the icons on the right-hand screen shift, too.

    I'm running Win 10 Pro x64, nView Desktop Manager, & DisplayFusion (which I'm not so sure I need).
